The Tanzanian duo of Fadhili Ramadhani, 26, and Ibrahim Jobu, 36, known for their incredible arm strength and head-balancing act, took home the spin-off series’ inaugural trophy and its grand prize of $250,000.

The Ramadhani brothers hugged each other on stage and their mentor Howie Mandel, 68, rushed to congratulate them as golden confetti fell.

‘Ramadhani brothers, you are the champions!’ said host Terry Crews, 55.

“I’m so proud of you,” Howie said. ‘What you do is so dangerous, so inspiring. You deserve this. You are superstars! Stars of the world!’

Terry then gave Howie a ring for being the winning mentor on the show. Howie jokingly knelt down as Terry pulled out the ring box. Howie put on the ring and proudly showed it to the crowd.

The action-packed two-hour show began with a dazzling performance by the Ramadhani brothers and skaters Billy and Emily England of Las Vegas, while self-taught trapeze artist Aidan Bryant of Prince George, Virginia, a former AGT winner, spun from above of the audience. Returning contestant Brian Justin Crum and Loren Allred sang the opening song This Is The Greatest Show.

Simon Cowell, 64, said winning AGT: Fantasy League was about more than just the money.

“It’s being the best of the best,” Simon said. ‘They’ve all been brilliant but they’re also incredibly competitive. …To win this tonight, yeah, I’m not going to lie. That’s a big problem.’

Finalists performed riveting duets with returning AGT contestants and industry legends. Irvine, California singer Kodi Lee teamed up with singer Steven Sanchez performing his hit song Until I Found You. Kodi, who is legally blind and autistic, was dressed in white while playing the piano and amazed the crowd with his incredible musical skills.

“It was a great honor to perform with him,” Kodi said after their duet.

The show also included a lot of clips of Mel B. from her time on the show. Mel said he was happy to be back.

“I loved it,” Mel said.

Country artist Drake Milligan, 25, took the stage singing his hit What I Couldn’t Forget. This was followed by the Chapel Hart singing trio performing You Can Have Him Jolene. The audience applauded as they sang.

The show also had a cute skit where it showed emojis to the judges and they had to guess which contestant they represented.

The Sainted Choir, from Charlotte, North Carolina, performed with Robin S, 61, and sang their hit song Show Me Love.

During the show, Howie commented that he liked how this version of the show gave them the opportunity to mentor the acts. Howie said Simon took it to another level and had his contestants come to his house.

“Simon’s tutoring is like a play date because everyone had to go to his house for tutoring,” Howie said.

“How come we’ve never been invited?” said Heidi Klum, 50.
